Chorus                         Carnivale  (Carnivale)             Time for Celebrating

Carnivale  (Carnivale)             Let’s go masquerading

We can wear our costumes now and party till the morning hour

Bringin on Fat Tuesday now and sin our woes away!

Carnivale  (Carnivale)             Party ‘fore the masses

Carnivale  (Carnivale)             ‘til we cross ourselves with ashes

Rich or poor we all escape, and know by Easter we’ll be saved.

Nothin’ like Amazing Grace to get you off the hook!
